it didn't work out.
the nipple-flange coupling didn't hold out after all. tried cementing it in (first with paste, then osto-bond, then flange material) but it came loose. brown.
i would've worked on that if it weren't for...
... the smell. those nipples retain odor. all of me smelled brown.
the adapt glue with the nipple made something unsavory happen, don't know what exactly but maybe it "melted" the nipple material and the whole thing made my skin completely freak out. ouch!
here's what's in the works:
a kind woc nurse is trying to get me in with another colorectal surgeon to revise the revision, to pull a little bit more of colon through to allow the daggone thing to sit in the light instead of in this funnel cave. i'm praying for this to happen sooner rather than later, ideally THIS WEEK! because my skin is freaked out, poop on it 24/7, and to get this done before year's end would be the best christmas present ever.
